    UEFA Champions League 2009-2010

    I can hardly wait for the return leg on Wednesday. My anticipation grows each day, and I'm beginning to feel really confident about our chances. As for the first leg, I was disappointed with the team and the reactions from Barcelonistas. I personally didn't see the ref favouring Inter. There...

    Star wars final battle a.k.a "El clásico" [P+R]

    Pep is the perfect manager for Barcelona right now. He won the Treble in his debut season. Now, it's true we've had an amazing squad since 2004, but you still have to be a proper manager to pull off a Treble. In your first try. Playing probably the best footy the world has ever seen along the...

    Uefa Champions League Quarter-final : Arsenal FC v FC Barcelona

    Fully agree. I've been saying this for years. I don't understand all the media hype around Arsenal every season. They don't even come close to winning a trophy. Their results against United and Chelsea are embarrassing for a team that pretends to compete for the title. I expected Arsenal to...

    FC Barcelona Thread [2009/10]

    It was more about other things than the competition itself, like completing the trophy cabinet, winning the record sixth title in a single season and above all witnessing history. People were very happy, and with good reason.

    I can personally testify to the greatness of Buti Ymeri. Big Barcelonista and an even bigger person. As for Barça, I just want to congratulate Sevillista on qualifying. Sevilla are a quality side and I hope they win la Copa. Best of luck to them. Visca el Barça!!

    I don't think this is doable for us. Those are the burdens we had to carry in 06-07 and we failed. Miserably. I'd be happy with the league and the Club world championship. I desperately want that trophy, we haven't won it yet as you say. ---------------- btw, I can't wait for Inter Milan...

    UEFA Champions League Final: FC Barcelona Vs Manchester United

    You are. If I'm not mistaken, Gio van Bronckhorst handballed in the area in the first leg, and the ref gave non of it. He could have whistled a penalty for Benfica. I think we would have gone through anyway, but the fact stands that they could have had a spot kick but didn't...

    Real Madrid Thread [2008 - 2009]

    I don't understand why some people would think Florentino learned his lesson. That may be true mind you, but nothing indicates it. Florentino is a very rich and successful man who's used to things working out for him. He runs the show wherever he goes. I've read a good article about him and...

    Manchester City Thread [08/09]

    I'm with Shifty here. Sevillista makes good points, and any person should be able to live a great life with that kind of money, but they almost never do. You know how much you have and you think you can buy anything. Then you get used to the lifestyle and before you know it, you've drained...

    Forget goalies, what's important is who can make the most passes that don't produce goals. And it's funny how this is the one category Messi & Co. can't participate in. The condition is that your team doesn't score, which sucks for us. :D Also, another great category is the key goal...

    Pending defeat today. And btw, the newspapers are putting Huntelaar as a starter. He could get injured again.

    It's not complex. You can register one player for the CL who played the UEFA Cup. You have two of those, therefore you have to choose. If by any chance you play both of them against Liverpool, it means you've been given a late Christmas present by Platini. It's very simple and there can be no...

    Messi and Zidane, though playing different positions with different styles, cannot be pulled down to the same category as Robben, and especially not CR.

    Arnau's a good guy. The difference between him and others here is that he doesn't sugarcoat his thoughts.

    Internazionale Milano [2008-2009]

    In this short time Mourinho has been at Inter, what do you Interistas think of his work so far? Are there any major changes to your football, has a particular aspect of your game been improved noticeably etc? Basically, do you think you're going up or down?

    Ronaldinho's still not beating players, though. He's just passing it around. He'll be back to his best when he starts dribbling again, but for that he'll have to get his body back to shape. Lets see what Milanello is really made of, because I reckon you'll be fighting off Ronnie's disco...
